First Postgraduate Year

The first year of training is designed with an emphasis on a balance of core medical specialties including Emergency Pediatrics, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Surgery, and Anesthesia. It is designed to provide the house officer with a broad-based experience in the management of simple and complex emergencies.

Second Postgraduate Year

The second year is largely divided between the Emergency Department and critical care rotations. The emphasis is on refining procedural and clinical skills and acquiring in-depth knowledge of complex pathophysiology. By the end of this training year, residents are expected to manage several critical patients simultaneously and prioritize levels of severity of illness under direct staff supervision. Clinical or basic science research activities begin at this time. Residents assume a larger role in the educational function of the program and in the training of junior residents and students.

Third Postgraduate Year

The resident manages a defined clinical area within the Emergency Department, takes on additional patient care responsibilities, and assists in the supervision of medical students. Organizational and administrative problems are brought to the third year resident for resolution. Research activities are brought to fruition and the resident is encouraged to present abstracts at local and national meetings. There is more active participation in medical student didactics and paramedic in-service training.


Four hours of formal Emergency Medicine conference are held each week consisting of didactic lectures, flipped classroom experiences, case management conferences, morbidity and mortality review, and evidence based review conferences. One hour every week is dedicated to pediatric emergency medicine topics. An annual in-service examination is given.

The first month for PGY 1’s is an orientation month. During this month each resident has a reduced shift requirement that is supplemented with daily lectures and labs.


Our residency has a long history and continued commitment to excellent emergency medicine research. Each of our residents completes at least one scholarly project during their training, and each year several are able to present their work at regional and national conferences. Our stellar research faculty mentor residents from the beginning of residency with formal education on research methodology, through the completion of each of their projects. The department and institution provide significant resources towards that end. The Emergency Department has a full time research nurse manager who oversees a research staff of 7 people, two of which are based at our community hospital in Troy, Michigan. The Beaumont Research Institute provides necessary support (IRB, contracts, statistics, etc.) to conduct small or large scale research.
